This record group includes information by and about the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) at the University of North Carolina Wilmington from 1960 to the present. CHHS consists of the School of Health and Applied Human Sciences (SHAHS), School of Social Work (SSW), and School of Nursing (SON). Administrative files produced by campus offices are predominant in this record group.

Most of the files document growth, development, and accreditation of degree programs in physical education, athletic training, parks and recreation management, nursing, and social work. In addition, there are brochures, course syllabi, and programs from various disciplines, including clinical research, exercise science, gerontology, and public health. Faculty biographical information and faculty scholarly publications represent all three schools. Some clippings feature UNC Wilmington students and professors from health sciences and nursing, while others highlight building construction and other CHHS milestones. Prevalent throughout the record group are accreditation reports, admission bulletins, annual reports, administrative correspondence, graduation programs, news releases, newsletters, photographs, policies, proposals for graduate and undergraduate degree programs, publicity for special events, self-study evaluations, and strategic plans. Topics addressed in this record group include fundraising for Trask Coliseum; the James Walker Associate Degree in Nursing which began as a hospital-based training program; and UNCW Health and Human Services Week.
